I found something to be true: the less time I have, the more productive I am. I have seen this principle work in other areas of my life, but it took becoming a mom for me to see it affect my business. Before, I could spend hours working on something and figured the more I worked the more I would accomplish. That was only partly true. Less breaks and extended time in my office didn’t increase my productivity.

Before you think I’m trying to say I can do anything and everything with time to spare, that’s not the case. Running a small business with a 6 month old is challenging. It is even more difficult to balance work with home life… especially when you work from home. Talk about blurred lines. However, having less time to work means that when I do sit down to edit, email, blog, etc… I am a lot more efficient. I have to be! When time is your most valuable commodity you are a lot more careful how you spend it.

I am generally more efficient with my time, bit it’s a learning process for me to see how to balance everything. I find myself evaluating and reevaluating as I go, and it has been good for us to define out priorities personally and professionally. I want to be present for Daphne, and create a schedule that allows me to be the mom I want to be and a small business owner. Like most things in life, it’s a work in progress.
